Folic Acid is B Vitamin and functions in a fashion similar to that of Vitamin B12. It aids in red blood cell production‚ and helps break-down and utilize protein. It is essential for DNA & RNA synthesis and thus important for healthy cell division and replication. For expectant mothers‚ it helps prevent neural tube defects*. Folic Acid helps to protect us from heart disease* because it helps to reduce concentration of artery clogging amino acid‚ homocysteine. It works synergistically with B12.
Who should consider this formula?
Folic Acid supplementation is essential for all women of child bearing age. It supports heart health as an antagonist to artery-clogging amino acid‚ homocysteine. Folic Acid may have additional applications for: cervical health‚ mental health/acuity‚ oral hygiene.
Why is Folixor® a better folic acid supplement?
Intensive Nutrition's Folixor® formulas are under-the-tongue‚ meaning that they are absorbed bucally. Generally‚ buccal absorption is superior because it ensures maximum absorption. Folixor® also contains folinic acid‚ the “body ready” form of folic acid which means that it is more bioavailable or better absorbed than basic folate. Folixor® contains adjuvants Vitamin C‚ Vitamin B12 and Leucine which support folate activity.
What about 5-methyl-tetrahydrofolate? Why is this not in Folixor®?
Methyl-tetrahydrofolate is the most bioavailable form of folate‚ however‚ there are several studies which indicate that the action of 5-methyl-tetrahydrofolate is not superior to that of folic acid‚ in fact they seem to work just as well as each other. In addition‚ certain genotypes seem to prefer folic acid to methyl. As folic acid and folinic is considerably less expensive than 5-methyl but just as if not more effective when delivered bucally‚ we therefore use folic acid and folinic acid to make Folixor® cost-effective and affordable for our customers.
